Some of the material was published in African-American newspapers, including the Washington Afro and the Washington Star.
Arrangement:
The records are arranged into three Series:

Series 1: Correspondence, Series 2: Publicity and Series 3: Minutes.
Biographical / Historical:
The Institute on Race relations existed from 1943-1951 in Washington, DC. It was created as a means to circumvent the rising tide of segregation and discrimination in America. Attacking discriminatory practices and Jim Crowism, members of the Institute advocated for education and non-violent demonstrations that incorporated interracial relationships in order to foster greater economic and political achievement in the United States. Led by Tomlinson Todd, acting director of the Institute and creator of "Americans All" radio program, the Institute remained one of the most profound advocacy organization for change in 20th century America.

President-elect Tomlinson Todd fervently took up the cause of non-violent action by persuading members of the importance of education reform and on utilizing political empowerment strategies. Through the creation of his "Americans All" radio program, which aired in DC from 1946-1962, Todd had been able to foster a dialogue between people from various backgrounds and initiate the discussion concerning segregation and racial discrimination in America. By informing members on the significance of the theory of complete integration, he sought to shed light on the success of non-violent action, and to convince the American public of its importance in the fight against racial subordination. The Institute on Race Relations also focused on the equal treatment of African American soldiers in the U.S military. In locating areas where Black soldiers had been denied access, the Institute became a spokesperson for shedding light on their heroic deeds, and highlighted their contributions to the war effort.

Fighting for the rights of the underprivileged until his death in 1987, Tomlinson Todd became known as a civil rights agitator, and one of the great proponents of non-violent direct action. Mr. Todd was credited for discovering the lost laws of 1872 which had forbidden restaurants and entertainment industries from serving African Americans after the Civil War. In bringing these laws to the attention of the Corporation Counsel's office, Tomlinson Todd was able to reverse the practice, and to make discrimination against African Americans in public places a federal offense. His efforts led to the desegregation of restaurants that began to take place in the 1950s.

Tomlinson Todd, who suffered a heart attack in D.C. at the age of 76, was survived by no children.

Biographical / Historical:
Edward Dugger was born June 6, 1894 in Finchley, Virginia. His father, William Henry Dugger was born a slave in 1845 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia but lived as a free man by 1870. His mother, Mary Jane Hepburn, was born in 1855. As the last of 8 children, Edward's family moved to Natick, Massachusetts, and again to Boston, MA, where he attended Boston English High School. After graduating in 1914, he enlisted in the United States Army which was resistant to welcoming African American soldiers. However, when President Woodrow Wilson declared war against Germany in April 1917, he created two all black units, the 92nd and 93rd Division (Colored), and sent the newly enlisted African American solder's to training camp. Dugger was invited to the first officer's training camp and graduated with the rank of first lieutenant by the fall of 1917. Before his first deployment, he married Madeline Mabray Kountze in June 1918. Kountze was a teacher who later studied law, became recognized for fighting against job discrimination, her extensive volunteer work, and her role as the former vice president of the local chapter of the NAACP.

Dugger saw action in St. Dié-des-Vosges, Marbache Sector, and Meuse-Argonne in the closing months of the war and won distinction for bravery before returning home in March 1919. After returning from the war, he became Captain of Company K of the 372nd Infantry. By 1930, he became the Commanding Officer of Company L of the 6th Massachusetts Infantry. In 1936, he was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and retired from the military.

He served on the Boston Police Force for 4 years and then joined the United States Postal Service in 1923, working until his retirement in 1938. Aside from his military and work experience, Dugger served as President of the Men's Community Club, which established the first Community Center, chaired the Citizen's Committee that brought the Boy Scout Troup #11 to West Medford in 1938, and became the first black member of the City Planning Board. Unfortunately, he had been sick for many years with polycystic kidney disease in addition to the mustard gas exposure from the war. On March 5th, 1939 at age 44 in the United States Naval Hospital in Chelsea, MA. He was survived by his wife and 6 children: Edward Jr. (1919). Barbara Anne (1921), Madeleine (1922), Portia Alma (1924), Cortland Otis (1926), and Ione (1931). Due to his contributions and dedication to the military and his community, on September 10th, 1939, the city of Medford honored him by naming a public park "Duggar Park". His daughter, Dr. Ione Vargus, gifted this collection to the Smithsonian Institute in memory of her father.
